Rhagades or cracks

RHAGADES OR CRACKS

WHAT ARE RHAGADES OR CRACKS?

Cracks on the heels occur mainly due to excessive dehydration of the skin and lack of fat in the skin.

 

The skin in the area of ​​the feet and instep has a different structure than elsewhere on the body. There are no sebaceous glands in these areas, so there is a lack of fat, which leads to the formation of hard skin (hyperkeratosis).

 

Because the feet are the most stressed part of our body, the very dry and corneous skin starts to crack, the cracks become painful and can become infected.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS AND TRIGGERING FACTORS?

The dry areas of the heels become corneous and thickened and the skin begins to crack.

The cracks can be small and superficial, but often they are deep and reach the deeper layers of the skin, where the veins and nerves are.

Such cracks hurt, can bleed and pose a danger to our health.

A crack is an ideal place for infection.

Usually, the TRIGGERS are the strain on the feet due to work or weight in combination with poor care for the supply of moisture and fat, which hydrate the skin and provide its elasticity.

Possible other causes of hard and cracked skin are working on our feet, obesity, surgery of the lower extremities, thorn in the heel, improper arrangement of metatarsal bones, flat foot, high arch of the foot, poor diet, inappropriate or too small footwear, athletic foot, psoriasis, thyroid problems, and diabetes.

INFECTIOUSNESS AND TRANSMISSION?

Rhagades are not contagious and are not transmitted. However, in the case of infection of the cracks on the heels, we must be careful to treat them properly and prevent the spread of infection and related complications.
